The US has issued a new travel warning for Russia which says the authorities "may single out and detain" Americans in the country.

Citing the potential for harassment of US citizens, the warning repeats calls for Americans not to travel to Russia or to leave "immediately".

It also warned Americans about the "arbitrary enforcement of local law".

The advisory also said there were continued reports of US citizens "being singled out and detained by the Russian military" when they're either in Ukraine or when they are evacuating by land through Russia-occupied territory.

"If you wish to depart Russia, you should make arrangements on your own as soon as possible," it reads.

The US suspended its embassy and consulate in Ukraine days after President Putin announced his invasion.
